Number of Servings: 4


    1 Tbsp Oat Flour
    1/8 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp salt
    Pinch of black pepper
    1 lb round steak cut into 1" cubes
    2 tsp olive oil
    8 oz button mushrooms, each halved
    1 onion, cut into bite size pieces
    1 Tbsp minced garlic
    1 tsp dried thyme
    2 14oz cans fat free beef broth
    2 large carrots, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
    1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" cubes


In a medium resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add the beef and shake the bag until all the cubes are coated. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Set a large nonstick soup pot over medium-high heat until it is hot enough for a spritz of water to sizzle on it. Add the oil. Add the reserved beef cubes to the pot in a single layer. Cook for about 1 minute per side or until browned. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the mushrooms, onion, garlic, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon and scraping and browned bits from the pan bottom, for about 10 minutes, or until the onion is tender.

Add the broth and carrots. Increast the heat to high. When the broth comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low so the mixture simmers gently. Cover and cook for 45 minutes. Add the potatoes. Cook for 45 minutes, or until the beef is fork tender. Season with addional salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

    I love this stew. Its a bit on the sweet side due to the sweet potatoes, but a little extra black pepper fixes that for me. Portions are filling and delicious! - 1/5/10
